Not bad, not great either.

Was here in Bastrop for a large event. This hotel was one of the options I had for the 4 nights and a good group rate was given to our group although my AAA rate was even better so I went with this hotel.
Straight out the gate I am going to confess that I am a Marriott fan and hardly ever defy brand loyalty but in this case decided to go with the flow as so many of my friends were staying here.
There was plenty of good things. The bed was comfortable (except for the weird little pillows) and my room was clean and even more important quiet. Breakfast was the standard free hot breakfast buffet. I have celiacs so my options were limited to the fresh fruit and yogurt. Some mornings there was nice fresh fruit some mornings there was not. My last day there was only 1 banana in the basket. The juice dispenser gave a pretty good glass of OJ, which was hard to tell was a concentrate; that was a pleasant surprise.There were waffles in the shape of Texas which was super cute. Also eggs & sausage. Instant Oatmeal and a selection of 3 cereals, none of them GF. A very disappointing part of breakfast was the coffee. I'm no coffee connoisseur but I felt that the coffee was like the kind that you get out of the coffee machine at a rest area. Yuck. Visited hot tub and pool 2 of the 4 nights. No complaints there either. Both clean and well maintained. My biggest complaint is the staff, they reminded me of straight out of B movie characters. Weird old fashioned uniforms. One lady spoke like she was reading from a script. I opted out of room service a couple of days. When requesting TP from a housekeeper in the hall she let me know she did not speak English. I'm fairly sure she did speak English but she just didn't want to give me a roll of TP. Again this was not a bad hotel, but it was not a great one either. less
